Dang! This book is kicking my tail. So I’m starting to make a move on some of the principles in here. I got a new journal at the beginning of the year and I’ve been incorporating my notes from messages and conversations in it. Maxwell encourages us to take daily notes – so I started today on the plane with lessons learned from this weekend – doing my first wedding. You’ll probably see some quotes from the book over the next couple of days – it’s too good not to share. If it hits you like it hits me, you’ll be getting your own copy soon.
“My toolbox of experience had only one tool in it: a hammer. If all you have is a hammer, everything looks like a nail. So I pounded and pounded. I fought many battles I shouldn’t have. I enthusiastically led people down dead-end roads. I possessed the confidence that only the inexperienced can possess.”
p157, Leadership Gold, John C. Maxwel
